We aim to be an inclusive and open group, with expertise in key aspects of neurodegeneration, neuroimaging and data analysis. We regularly collaborate with other groups, particular around methods and data sharing.


PhD students

We recruit PhD students through the Department of Clinical Sciences. Applications are usually in December with interviews in January/Febuary to start in the following October. Please contact Dr Rittman to discuss PhD plans well ahead of the application. We have a high rate of success in applicants achieving funding for their PhDs, particularly through the Cambridge Trust. This requires plenty of time to write a good application and prepare for the interview.

Post Doctoral and Other Positions

We occasionally have positions open for post-doctoral researchers and other posts, details of which will be posted here and at
